In life we often forget about the importance of the small things that happen in life, and just focus on the big stuff. Those big pivotal moments in life get all of the glory, but when do we actually stop and focus on the small things that happen? Those moments that we take for granted and don’t think about, where is the big celebration for them?
These moments can come in so many different variations. It could just be the fact that you woke up and showered today when you couldn’t bring yourself to do it for a week. It can be anything! In todays post I want us to focus on those small things. No matter what they are, or how stupid we might think they are. If they are important to you, they are important to us.
SOMETIMES THEY ARE THE BIG THINGS
Sometimes those small things that happen, or the things we are blessed with might seem small, but actually they are quite big. I take for granted waking up in a warm, safe home everyday. That might seem like a small thing to me but in reality it’s a huge thing. Often times the small things in life are the big things but its all about our perspective and how we see them.
We need to recognise more often the smaller victories in life and learn to appreciate them too.
We should always celebrate the things we have in life, whether big or small because they matter. The small things have the same amount of importance as the big. And oftentimes you’ll find that the smallest things that happen your life can actually make a big impact.
Small things can come in various shapes and sizes. It could be a stranger smiling at you after a bad day, or a unexpected card in the mail from a friend. They seem small to the sender, but they are big for the receiver. Which is why we all need to learn to be kind to one another, and recognise when someone needs a gesture from us.
IT’S GOOD FOR OUR MENTAL HEALTH
Recognising the small stuff is good for our mental health. It makes you really think about the good that you have in life and how good we actually have it. It helps bring perspective to our lives too, and sometimes we need that reminder.
As I mentioned in the intro, celebrating getting out of bed and showering might not seem big to some of us. But if you’re a person who has suffered from depression and have found yourself not getting up for hours and hours after waking. Then waking up and showering is a big victory. Which seems small to everyone else, but big to you.
Do you find that you forget the importance of celebrating the small things? How do you celebrate them?
This post really was intended to get you thinking and sharing what small things you often forget to celebrate. So please do that in the comments. Let us know the small stuff that you have in your life that you often take for granted.
